Hi, Grace Bible Church!

Here’s a brief rundown of what’s coming up over the next days and weeks at Grace:

Upcoming Events

Ladies, the following events are cancelled due to the weather: 

  • Young Mom’s Fellowship on March 1st from 9-11 am.
  • Women’s Prayer Meeting on March 2nd.

Join us this Sunday, March 3rd after the service for a short informational meeting about worship ministry at GBC. We will meet in the Multipurpose Room (next to the coffee station) for about 30 minutes. This will be a great time to get to know one another, learn about the worship ministry, and see how you can get involved.


Are you interested in being a part of a young adults ministry at Grace? They will be getting together on Monday, March 4th in the barn. Email Harrison Womack at harrison@gbcbend.org for more information. If you’d like to stay in the loop with what’s happening with the Young Adults Ministry, sign up at the link below.


Want to grow in your Christian faith? Better understand who God is and what the Bible teaches? Meet with a mentor for guidance about specific areas of Christian living? Or maybe you’re just curious about Christianity? We’d love to match you with a mature Christian trained in discipling and mentoring others for 12 weeks starting in March. Available for individuals and couples. If you’d like to receive discipleship/mentoring please click the button below. If you have any questions please call our Counseling and Discipleship Director, Dave Robinson at 541-325-9340.


Please join us for a morning of fellowship, sharing, and a potluck brunch with other ladies of Grace. Childcare up to age eight is available. Please sign up at the link below with what item you will bring and if you can help with set up or clean up. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there!


Jesus is risen and we are excited to celebrate with you! We will have a Good Friday service on April 19th at 7:00 pm, as well as two services on Easter Sunday at 8:30 and 10:30 am. Invite your friends and neighbors, and plan to join us as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!

As part of our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord this Easter, we will be having baptisms! If you would like more information or are interested in getting baptized, click the link below to learn about the meaning and practice of baptism and to get started. There will also be a baptism class on April 14th after the service.


Registration is open for Man Camp 2019 at Washington Family Ranch! This year the speaker will be Ty Neal, pastor of Grace Point Church in Las Vegas. You won’t want to miss what is always a fantastic and valuable time! The early bird registration cost is $135, and includes food and lodging. Register by March 25th for the early bird price! For more information, go to mancampnw.com.


We are in need of a team of volunteers to serve on the meal crew for Man Camp, which is April 26-28th at Washington Family Ranch in Antelope, Oregon. There is no cost to serve, and you will be provided separate lodging with the rest of the volunteers. Responsibilities for the weekend will include helping with meal prep, serving meals, washing dishes, and cleaning the dining hall. One of the ways Washington Family Ranch is able to keep registration costs down is through the help of volunteer meal crews, so your help is greatly appreciated!


Update from Fred Sackett with Orphanages of Kenya:

Hi Grace Church. This message is for both information and exhortation. I thought it would be interesting to you that we have already reached an amount of $406.41 from our Bottle and Can Drive for the Orphanages of Kenya. This is impressive for such a young program. GBC along with the Wed. and Fri. schools that meet at our facility have done a great job. Now for the exhortation. Considering the number of families that attend Grace I am sure we can improve on this greatly. I am sure there are many families out there who have not “jumped on the bandwagon” to support the Orphanage of Kenya in this very easy way.  My word of exhortation is to get on board.

The bottle and can bins are open every Sunday after church until 11:30. It is located on the north side of the administration building. Join the fun, bring your bags or boxes of plastic, metal and glass bottles and let’s “up our game” by double in the next 2 months.

March Church Planter Highlight | Ben & Natalie Bronson

Ben Bronson is the lead Pastor of Pillar Bible Fellowship in Hood River, Oregon. After graduating high school, Ben entered a pastoral training school and married his wife Natalie a month after its completion. They moved to Bend, Oregon to start out married life together and to assist in a newly planted church in the area. Ben had known for years that church planting was in his future, but was unsure of the time or the place. Through various circumstances showing God’s providence, Hood River became the place to which God was unmistakably calling him and his family. The Bronsons are thrilled to be living in the Hood River Valley, and are thankful for the great things that God is accomplishing through this body of believers at Pillar Bible Fellowship.
